All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Horror Hotel (1960)

City Of The Dead

AKA: City of the Dead
Director: John Llewellyn Moxey
Starring: Christopher Lee


Synopsis:
A college student travels to a small Massachusetts town to research witchcraft and winds up as a sacrifice to a coven.

My Take:
A simple plot takes a back seat to atmosphere in this one where being filmed in black and white actually helps the cause. Always mesmerizing to watch Christopher Lee stand out in even an average role.

Rating: In the Middle
